Zoe grew up in New York City and has spent time abroad, living at different points in three countries outside the United States. In today’s global environment, she brings a diverse array of experiences to our legal practice, applying her skills with curiosity and passion for the law.
Why Disability Law?
During college, Zoe served as president of the Military Support Club, a student organization that supported disabled veterans. It was then that she developed a passion for advocating for those in need. Following that, during law school, while working for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, Zoe gained hands-on legal experience helping victims obtain justice and compensation.
Today, she continues to pursue her passion for helping others as a member of the team of disability attorneys at Dabdoub Law Firm where each attorney specializes in disability insurance and ERISA. She works hard fighting for clients against all major disability insurance companies such as Cigna, Aetna, Hartford, Unum, and more.
Zoe’s practice focuses on disability insurance claims governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). She also represents clients with individual disability insurance policies and own occupation policies. Zoe handles cases at all stages including initial claim filing, submitting an appeal and filing a lawsuit.
Because ERISA is a federal law she is able to represent clients across the nation.
